But wait there is more …..

Another 14/15s team was also strutting their stuff on Saturday:10678735_700977143324399_6276699389591156895_n

  • Rangers 6 were moved up from division 3 after the first three games and have gone from strength to strength to make the finals in Division 2. They were too good for Centenary on Saturday and are looking good for the coming week.


Sophie and Alanah Jenkins were presented with their Rangers umpiring shirts after achieving their Silver Association Award the previous week. 2014 is certainly been a great year for our umpires.


IMG_3680What a beautiful day for netty.  Here is how we went:

  • A Grade had a win for their last game.  Great way to finish the season girls.
  • Rangers 8 - lost for the first time this season after Genevieve,  broke her finger.  They still finished on top of the ladder so go straight to the grand final on 13 Sept.
  • Rangers 7 - finished their season 2nd on the ladder and will fight it out next week to make the grand final
  • Rangers 3 – played Lakers in the semi final and unfortunately narrowly went down.  Great effort from this team to make the final after only coming together as a team this year.  Look out next year!
  • Rangers 9 – in a semi final were just too good for Stuartholme and move on to next weeks prelim final.
  • Rangers 12 – staged a strong come back in their semi final against Centenary but fell short by just two goals.
  • Rangers 13 - are saving some of their best netball for the semi finals and won a nail biter agains Bluejays to progress to the next round.
  • Rangers14 – went down to St Josephs in their semi final but as they finished 2nd on the ladder they get another chance at the price this week. They’ll be stronger for their finals experience.


We also had our umpires in the mix this weekend having been asked to umpire finals.  Well done Nicola, Emily S, Sophie, Emily T, Sharon, Susan and Caroline.  Thank you ladies for flying the flag at this higher umpiring level for Rangers.



For those teams with 8 in their division – it’s semi finals tomorrow.  Rangers has eight teams into the finals – What a great effort!  The following teams will fight it out to progress tomorrow:

“Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless”

IMG_3850The Challenge Carnival figures are out and the wonderful volunteers for Rangers provided 61.5 hours of time to help our associations carnival be a success.  This equate to 61.5 points which is just over $1,000!!!!  These $s can be redeemed from WDNA for our club in coaching/umpiring courses, sports equipment or credit on cost of lights etc.  So thank you, thank you thank you to the following wonderful volunteers:

Ranger Wet WeatherWell done to all our teams who braved the wet weather to play today. Our girls looked great in the wet – breed them tough at Rangers.   Nice to see the new ‘all weather’ courts lived up to their name with minimal slipping.

IMG_0404Congratulations to Emily Serow who celebrated with her team when presented with her Umpiring Shirt.  Emily attained her Umpiring Gold Association Award last week.  The examiners commented that Emily has the skill to work towards to her National Badge.  Great effort Em – must be in the genes!
